I finally got to take the PDP to the range. I didn't know I could shoot that good. Thing is easy to shoot well. Now I want the plate and my Vortex Viper to come in, LOL

Looking at the guns listed in your Signature, I'm surprised to read you saying you didn't know you could shoot that good? the PPQ M2 is quite a good shooting gun too. But I do concur, the PDP is a tack driver.

My PPQ and 99 shoot great but the PDP shoots as good as my Springer EMP 4 and I shoot it the best of my 1911's. I didn't think a striker trigger could be this good. The gun just fits.

New, first-time gun owner here. I finally shot my PDP 4 Compact at the indoor range where I'm a member. I had switched out the medium backstrap for the "smaller" one, which I think gives a better grip topology for my gun hand, if that makes sense. I was shooting 115 grain FMJ at fairly short distances: mainly to check the sights. I agree with FFLMike: "the gun just fits." Recoil seems "cushioned" somehow: I don't have a sense that the gun is trying to tear itself out of my grip.

I did OK shooting: holes were generally centered but a bit low. I have a feeling that's me and sight alignment/sight picture not inaccurate sights. It's really nice to shoot.

regards,
John

I did NOT know that. Thanks. So with the combat hold/image 3....the center dot covers the bull center; and the three sight dots together bisect the bull. I'll take a closer look in my dry fire and live fire training. Thanks again!

Congrats on your PDP 4" Compact. Don't know if you know this or not, but Walther uses the combat hold or sight picture...that'd be sight image 3, below.

ok,.. that does explain a great many of my LOW shots! (..unfortunately, not ALL of them. Lol) I assumed and have been using the #2 Hold/sight picture.
@imaoldfart Thanks for posting this information.

My Vortex Viper finally got here. Got my PDP mounting plate in earlier this week after 26 days. Got it mounted and got it sighted in on according to my Strikeman Laser training system. It'll be next week before I'll be able to take it out and shoot it.

That looks killer. I love how low the Vortex sits on the PDP. Is yours a compact 15Rd or full size 18 rd?

Lordy...so many folks just either don't think about this or don't know. Thanks for posting.

Me...too old for Iron Sights....eyesight drives me bonkers with them.

Red Dots...only way to go...simple...red dot on target.....squeeze.

Did not even know what the Strikeman was...interesting. Let us know how it compares to actually zeroing the pistol with live ammo.

Actually works very good. I have used it several times. Nothing actually replicates live fire but very very close.

I just got my new PDP compact 4” on Saturday. I am very very pleased, although I am going to buy the 5” compact when I can get one. The balance on the 4” is perfect, just like the PPQ I replaced, and I know an extra inch will make it absolutely perfect. (That’s what she said)

Got my PDP last Wed and the plate arrived a couple days ago. Can't wait for this weekend and taking it to the range for the first time.
I am actually going to pack up for the range in about an hour. Been carrying it since Monday and with the new holster I got, it makes for a good daily carry for sure.
